How to get to us


Try to leave your cars at home!

Heaton Festival has been designed for people to walk into rather than drive to, and so we only have parking for blue badge holders. If you want to get to us by public transport we recommend the routes below.

Walking or by bike

Heaton Park is on many cycle routes and there are many places to safely lock up your bikes when you get here.

Its also easy to walk in Heaton Park where you will be greeted by welcomers at every entrance.

By Bus

There are many buses that stop near to Heaton Park, including the number 1 and 18. 

If you are coming along the Coast Road get off at the Corner House Hub and it’s less than a 10 min walk  either through the park or along Heaton Road from there. (Buses 306-310 and 38, 58)

For others check out the Nexus web site.

By Metro

Getting to Heaton Festival by metro is easy! You can either go to Chillingham Rd or Byker Metro stations. From either it’s about a 15 minute walk.

By Car

Please use coming to the festival by car as a last resort.

Parking is available at Morrisons in Byker (0.3 miles) with a short walk along Heaton Park Road, or Jesmond Academy School’s Newton Road car park  (0.8 miles) from where its a beautiful walk through Jesmond Dene to find us
